Unicorn Riot is an independent media organization that is supported by the grassroots. Over the past six years, YOU have been there to provide financial support, sharing of information, and most importantly viewership. YOU, our grassroots base, have created a convergence of amplification for our work!
During the protests for George Floyd, Jamar Clark, NoDAPL, and Line 3, Unicorn Riot was one of the only media outlets to cover the uprisings from an on the ground perspective, highlighting those in the streets and frontlines, and those most impacted by the events. While we have received a generous amount of support from the community, many public systems and the mainstream media have attempted to delegitimize our work and our journalists. We believe it’s simply because our media is led by the people, not corporate or state interest.
We want to thank you for supporting us and ask for your continued support! As we approach our 7-year milestone (we are at six years and eight months right now), we are going into this fundraising season with sustainability and growth in mind. Sustaining organization revenue, increasing our operating capacity, and expanding our media making with new members, new content and reaching a broader audience.
Our GiveMN goal of $6,800 represents our time in operation. Donations will support our ability to respond to current events and strengthen our organization. We are excited about the future of our work, and hope that you will continue along on this journey with us. Continued support from viewers like you ensures that we will always be able to tell the stories of those who do not receive the spotlight that they deserve!
